Celebrating a woman?s last night of freedom is considered tradition in many countries all over the world. In the past, the celebration was traditionally a ?one night only? affair. However, these days, hen weekends have become more popular.
A hen weekend is more of a mini vacation as most hen groups spend three days and two nights in a particular location. In many ways, a weekend is much better than just one night partying. A weekend will certainly give the celebrant more time to enjoy her last moments of freedom. That means more quality time with her girlfriends and more time to take on various activities.
Now, how does one choose a particular destination? There are several ways to go about it. Here are some ways to do that and some hen party ideas to boot.
What a Hen Wants
The most important thing to take into consideration is what the hen actually wants. After all, the whole celebration is for her benefit. That?s why in choosing a location, make sure that the place is one that the hen will want to go to.
If the hen already has a particular location in mind, one will have to respect her wishes. That makes the task much easier for the organizer as well.
Hen Party Activities
It is always a good idea to choose a particular location based on the hen party activities planned. Different locations will offer different activities and that can be the basis for choosing the location for the whole event.
For beach related activities, sunny Spain is a favorite among many Europeans.
It certainly is a popular summer holiday destination. One other option in the United Kingdom will be Blackpool. Aside from the beach, hens that are in touch with the child within will enjoy the amusement parks in this seaside resort. In Ireland, Sligo is one of the best destinations for hens that enjoy surfing.
So, choose a particular location based on activities that the whole group will enjoy. Of course, one must take into consideration the location?s nightlife scene especially is clubbing is a big priority. For the ultimate clubbing and beach experience, hens should think of going to Ibiza.
Convenience and Price
A lot of organizers tend to think that going to an international location for a hen party can get quite expensive. That is true to some extent. However, with the number of budget airlines operating nowadays, going to other countries in Europe became much more affordable.
One other thing to consider would be the fact that not everyone can take a weekend off to enjoy such an event. With that in mind, it will be a lot better to inform everyone in advance so that they can make time for it. True enough, if it was just a night out at one of the clubs or pubs in the area, more people can easily attend.
So, choose a location and start sending out those hen party invitations. Just make sure that there are enough daytime and nighttime activities to enjoy during the whole hen weekend and have fun.
